In Karen Hartman's "juicyfruit tragedy," two young sisters discover new appetites within the walls of their father's garden. Gum explores the need to tame nature in a fictional fundamental country where the title candy is contraband and every desire has its price. "A brief, intense, beguiling, sensual, witty, impassioned, deeply moving and brightly burnished gem"-San Francisco Examiner. Also includes The Mother of Modern Censorship. Karen Hartman is the author of Girl Under Grain, Troy Women and Alice: Tales of a Curious Girl. She is a native of San Diego who lives in Brooklyn and is currently the playwright-in-residence at Princeton University.
